News, but not the serious kind
Tasty as a mouthful of scorpions!
Okay, we’re told that this is the guy who currently holds the world record for having the most scorpions in his mouth.
Again, in case you missed it: Guy. Record. Scorpions. Mouth.
Five minutes ago, before I saw this picture, I would have guessed the world record for that would be ONE scorpion.
But as we now know, it turns out to be LOTS of them. Plus, the fact that he CURRENTLY holds the record tells me that there are dudes out there trying to take it away from him.
Anyway, the reason I’m posting his picture isn’t just for a cheap gross-out. Rather, I’m doing a public service. If you’re a dentist and you find this guy sitting in your chair, do NOT tell him to “open wide.”
